As part of Shop Rioja 2018, we will be helping celebrate Spain’s favourite wine region by hosting the following events:

Friday 5th October – #FreeTastingFriday: White Rioja

You may be familiar with red Riojas, we want to introduce you to white ones. Broadly speaking, there are two styles. We will be showing you light, fresh and tangy whites plus the full-bodied, rich and nutty style with something in between.

Join us anytime between 6pm and 8pm to taste

Friday 12th October – #FreeTastingFriday: The Classics

Rioja is a region steeped in history and this tasting will aim to celebrate that rich heritage focusing on some Bodegas who keep time honoured, traditional techniques at their core. Expect classic, delicious examples at each ageing level.

Join us anytime between 6pm and 8pm to taste

Friday 26th October – #FreeTastingFriday: Modern Rioja

Over the years, we have seen many producers change the status quo and experiment with their winemaking. This tasting aims to show you which ones stand out from the crowd and deliver something slightly different but unmistakably Rioja.

Join us anytime between 6pm and 8pm to taste

We will also have lots of different Rioja’s to try all day everyday throughout October on our tasting barrel – just ask a staff member.
